The Week in Review: Lighting the Way to 2015

lights1With the solstice nearly upon us, there’s about as much time left in 2014 as there is daylight. Amid the mad dash to get everything done before the holidays and the new year, things like Johns Hopkins rejection letters and campaigns staffers are getting left by the wayside. It’s the Week in Review for Dec. 12-19.

The holiday sprint is here. Amid the many things to do, we’ve picked out one set of Christmas decorations that are well worth your while.
As everyone begins to look ahead to 2015, a few surprises were dealt out that are making the crossover to the new year feel a bit unsteady. The incoming lieutenant governor decided to leave his staff behind, and Johns Hopkins accidentally sent acceptance letters to kids who they didn’t actually mean to admit. The mayor’s office is also looking forward to their newly-hired new health commissioner. She’s already a star in TED’s eyes.
For those looking for new spots to eat in 2015, Amy Langrehr has a pair of recommendations. She writes that Fells Point newcomer Lobo is the kind of place that’s easy to love at first sight. In an interview with Chef Zack Mills, she finds even more to like about Wit & Wisdom.
If you’re looking for a new home in the New Year, we’ve got plenty of options this week. For those who like to live among the past (but not in it), there’s an 1860 townhouse on Union Square, and a former gatehouse in Ruxton. A charming townhouse near Canton Square is also turning heads.
Looking for a weekend read that takes you to a place you haven’t been before? Don’t miss Laurel Peltier’s visit to a fracking boomtown in West Virginia.
Have a good weekend, and Let’s go Flacco, er.. Franco, or..whoever that guy is!
